The Russian Foreign Ministry accused Israel Wednesday of violating Jordanian airspace when Israeli aircrafts flew over the country on Monday on their way to attack targets near the Syrian-Iraqi border.
According to Moscow, the attack, along with three other Israeli aggressions this week have increased tensions and potential of further conflict around Syria.

A series of recent strikes in Iraq, some in the western part of the country, near the Syrian border, has been attributed to Israel. The attacks targeted Shiite militias affiliated with Iran and their convoys, allegedly involved in smuggling weapons into the territory.
Israel did not claim responsibility for the attacks, but Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hinted on several occasions that he would not hesitate to expand the limits of the Israeli campaign against Iran's influence in the region.
